So I can use it to control ceiling fan or fluorescent since the normal slimline switch only work with incandescent.   A application module works fine here, but I prefer something in switch style.

WS13A or XPS3 both are relay style decorator style wall switches. Used for things like fans.
One thing they require a neutral power wire and will not work with out it.

Sears sells X10 switches??? I don't think so.

Whatever you are seeing for 12 bucks at Sears isn't an X10 switch (he sez confidently  :').

Ah. Sears is doing a redirect to in this case Smarthome.
Like Amazon sells Insteon devices again drop shipped from Smarthome.

WOHOO!!  I stand happily corrected. However there is stong indications that X10 Inc  is no longer making "X10" products, so you should buy what you want quickly before stock runs out.
